Thank you to all the writers who took time to write and submit a story for this new collection. As I wrote in the call, I was looking for quick reads for book lovers to enjoy over the holidays. So this isn’t going to be a tome but rather a pocket-sizeed edition of some amazing stories that readers can carry with them everywhere and enjoy with ease.

These are the lovely writers, whose stories have been selected for the first My Holiday Shorts collection. These stories were funny, exciting, had interesting twists and endings. Most importantly as I read, my smile just grew bigger and bigger. I hope the readers will feel the same way about these amazing stories and these talented writers.

Congratulations and thank you for being part of this journey:

  • Ginny Swart
  • Boipelo Maetla
  • Lebogang Tlou
  • Liam Kruger
  • Sasha Ross
  • Catherine Shepherd
  • Zimkitha Sulelo
  • Megan Ross
  • Chinenye Emezie-Egwuonwu
  • Ilze Hugo

I plan and hope to have two editions of My Holiday Shorts out per year, so those of you who didn’t make it this time, should look out for the new call early in 2014.

Will announce a publishing date soon.
